March 2016 Horoscope for Aries

AriesThe month ahead begins quietly and slowly builds in activity, dear Aries. There is a lot to handle behind the scenes, particularly with the Sun, Venus, and Mercury moving through your privacy sector – at least one of them active at any point in March. However, Mars, your ruler, moves into your adventure sector on the 5/6th, and you’re a little more courageous and active rather than simply hopeful and optimistic. You’re making your own happiness rather than waiting for it to come to you. It feels easier to accomplish things now. This continues to build when the Sun and then Mercury enter your sign on the 20th and 21st, and you feel the need to take the reins.

Even so, the “quiet” times are essential. A Solar Eclipse occurs on the 8th, reminding you to take care of unfinished business before moving forward. Whether it’s a relationship, a way of life, or an attitude that needs to be put behind you, it becomes very clear that you need to make an important change. For some of you, something hidden or a secret could emerge, and while this can be disconcerting at first, it’s also freeing. You’re preparing yourself to move on to bigger and better things!

On the 8-10, listen to your intuition. You’re in a good position to understand yourself, others, and the past, and in so doing, you’re setting yourself up for strong decisions later. The 14th can be temperamental. There can be a “should I stay or should I go?” problem now. Intuition and instincts clash.

Work holds both strong opportunities and challenges this month. If you’ve been overdoing things, a Jupiter-Saturn square marches in, perfecting on the 23rd, to let you know that it’s not going to happen that way. However, a Jupiter-Pluto aspect that perfects on the 16th (and will continue to influence you until June), encourages continued efforts towards redesigning, renovating, and improving the work you do, and for many, health programs. There could be some recognition for efforts that previously were taken for granted. You can be thoroughly enjoying your work or daily routines, and this shows in the finished product. Even so, there are hurdles to jump and hard work to do. With these conflicting energies, it’s important to be resourceful and to think in terms of priorities. If you haven’t been coloring inside the lines, you may need to focus on the important details now. Of course, this will benefit you in the long run.

The Lunar Eclipse on the 23rd is the final cosmic push to sort out close relationships and matters of independence/dependence. You’ll be making important decisions about partnerships at this time. Recognition of relationship needs and feelings can come in a rush. Domestic issues can reach a head as well now. Use your powers of negotiation, talk things through, and aim to resolve problems.

The Sun and then Mercury move into your sign on the 20th and 21st, respectively. Venus will follow in the first week of April. This is a power period – a time when you feel more in control of your life, when people pay you more attention, and when you feel the confidence and motivation to make big personal and lifestyle changes. You’re seen and heard at this time. Mars working in harmony, exactly on the 24-26, can really get the juices flowing. It’s spring, and you really feel the energy of starting fresh. Creative ideas are powerful now. There can be a strong interest in being heard, producing, and publishing. Mars is nearing a retrograde that will begin on April 17th, and some of the projects you begin now could need some polishing then. Keep this in mind, but enjoy the spirit of renewal as well.
